Not all children that aren’t trained on time have parents who can’t potty train.

“Every child is gifted, they just unwrap their packages at different times.” — Unknown.

Children with developmental delays, behavioural disorders, hearing and vision impairment, food intolerances, and any number of disabilities or issues with toileting have special needs when it comes to potty training.

You may not even know a child has an illness; no matter how close you are to the parents.

Some illnesses are invisible, see the invisible illness stories, and you might understand why some parents choose not to share the trials and focus on the tribulations.
